As for newer songs, here are a few that I’ve been listening to over and over. The TV on the Radio obviously is blowing up everywhere, I’m sure they’ll be on the cover of Rolling Stone next month and blog wise I always see this Passion Pit track up, its super short and catchy, I can’t place the girl vocal sample in there, it sounds like its from a Disney movie. As for the Sally Shapiro track, the original is a favorite of mine it’s remixed by DFA’s The Juan MacLean who has an album coming out this year. Last but not least a brand new Jimmy Edgar single called Nothing Is Better that you can download for free.

That passion pit song has been on repeat for me for some while. Great post.
Also, does anyone else notice that scrolling through this website using firefox it is incredibly slow? Or is it just me?

Love the music focus recently (last few months) on ISO50. Tons of great stuff, extremely varied and very much enjoyed.
The Passion Pit track and the Sally Shapiro were great

Scrolling in FF didn’t seem to be the problem, but it is having a problem with my flash plugin and playing some of these tunes….

It’s been extremely slow on my Dual Quad Mac Pro in Safari as well. It has this weird really long load time, then it catches up.

Wow that Passion Pit song is hypnotizing and intense at the same time! What an awesome post.

Sleepyhead is my jam of the year, but then again I put out the 7″ for it on my label so I’m biased. But in answer to your question – this isn’t readily known (but I think it’s in the liner notes of the EP) but the sample is of a gaelic traditional irish folk song sung in Gaelic by Mary O’Hara from the 60’s. It’s called “Oro Mo Bahaidan” (Sleepyhead samples both the vocal and harp from it) and is definitely worth looking up just to further appreciate how brilliant the band is. You’re blog’s one of the best around, by the way.
